The new African Cup Of Nations’ (AFCON’s) prize money for the winner, runners-up, semi-finalists and the quarter-finalists has been revealed.

The disclosure followed a new development which caused the prize money to proliferate.

The step-up was a result of the decision by the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

CAF executives had to approve the uptick in prize money during a meeting in Douala, Cameroon on Friday.
